Orioles Acquire Francisco Rodriguez From Brewers for Prospect

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- Relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez was traded to the Baltimore Orioles from the Milwaukee Brewers for minor-league infielder Nick Delmonico.

Rodriguez, nicknamed K-Rod, is 1-1 with 10 saves and a 1.09 earned run average in 25 appearances this season.

An All-Star in 2004 and from 2007-09, Rodriguez has 304 saves during his 12-year Major League Baseball career. After seven years with the Los Angeles Angels, Rodriguez played for the New York Mets from 2009 into the 2011 season before being traded to Milwaukee.

Delmonico, 20, was a sixth-round draft pick by the Orioles in 2011. He was batting .244 in 60 games with Class-A Frederick this season before the trade.

To make room for 31-year-old Rodriguez on Baltimore’s 40-man roster, the team transferred outfielder Nolan Reimold to the 60-day disabled list, the Orioles said last night in a news release.

The Orioles are 57-44, 3 1/2 games behind the Boston Red Sox for the American League East lead. The Brewers are 41-58, in last place in the National League Central.
